IN conjunction with the upcoming Hari Raya and school holidays, Sunway Lost World of Tambun is hosting a celebration of all things Malaysian.

The Malaysia First Lah celebration, which starts tomorrow, allows visitors to experience the wonders of local Malay culture, reminiscent of traditions, values and customs that Malaysians share in a true spirit of unity. The event will end on June 9.

Among the many activities in store are traditional games such as giant congkak board and a hybrid game of teng teng with Snakes and Ladders.

The event will also feature the Humalaya Malayana (Malayana warriors) meet-and-greet session as well as an Awesome Raya Pool Party to spice things up during the Raya festivities.

“Games and sports have a unique way of bringing people together while creating and renewing bonds,” said general manager Nurul Nuzairi Mohd Azahari.

“This is why we are making fun games a big part of our Malaysia First Lah celebration, where families and friends can come together at Sunway Lost World of Tambun and celebrate awesome moments with traditional Malay games.”

He said it would be a special time for the whole family, creating a bridge between the older generation and the young ones, as parents can reminisce about their childhood playing games while the younger ones can enjoy the experience.

When all the fun and games leave participants hungry, they can indulge in special food and beverage promotions at Sunway Lost World of Tambun’s Dulang Tea House, with a specifically curated menu featuring traditional Malay favourites, including Rendang Tok Daging, Tempoyak Ikan Patin, rendang ayam, ketupat, lemang, nasi impit, ulam, air bandung, dodol and an assortment of kuih.

The event also saw the launch of Lost World of Tambun’s Kuang Raya conservation programme, the first of its kind in the country which was made official by Wildlife and National Parks Department (Perhilitan) director-general Datuk Abdul Kadir Abu Hashim.

The Kuang Raya, or Great Argus, is a pheasant species native to South-East Asia, identified by its brown plumage, blue head and neck, rufous red upper breast, black hair-like feathers on its crown and nape, and red legs.

Due to ongoing natural habitat loss and hunting, conservation of this species is essential to its survival, which has led Sunway Lost World of Tambun to take the lead in this regard, with a full-on conservation site on its grounds. Visitors can also can get up close and personal with these beauties.

To enable more people to experience this national treasure and to experience the Malaysia First Lah celebration, Lost World of Tambun has put together a special online promotion where tickets can be purchased at a 50% discount at RM58.50 (usual price: RM117) for adults and RM55 (usual price: RM110) for children.
